THE LATIMER LEGACY

The Latimer Legacy provides a detailed account of the lives of George and Lewis Latimer, spanning twelve decades. The story is told by a dream team of humanities advisors, including Hugh Price, an 82-year-old descendant who serves as a consulting producer and former president and CEO of the National Urban League. The life stories of George and Lewis Latimer reveal how racial prejudice, Reconstruction failures, and a flawed judicial system contribute to systemic racism’s evolution in our modern society, raising challenging questions about national culpability in structural racism.

Visionary filmmaker Michael Brown will direct the humanities pieces and Oscar-nominated director Andrew Young will direct the reenactment pieces. Together they will co-direct the project. The film seeks to confront and initiate a conversation about an era in American history that solidified modern-day structural racism in America and the journey of the Latimer men who bravely overcame it. The film is meant to shed new light on the shocking history of systemic racism and the impact both men had on our society. Finally, it will provide a thundering voice to the ongoing discussion of race and be a catalyst for systemic change in America.
